Useful Information about T1
Written by: Les Harper - May 31, 2008
Now that Internet is essential for business more and more business users are choosing permanent broadband connections,therefore T1 has become one of the most sought after connections. By using a T1 Internet access employees are able to communicate and send data with other colleagues,customers and sellers at speeds in excess of a standard dial - up connection.
T1 connections can download and upload up to 1.5 Mbps which equates to 30 times the speed of a 56K connection. One T1 connection can allow hundreds of users to use it at the same time,however speed and efficiency drop as more people are on - line at the same time.
There are different types of T1 lines,but basically it can be used for your voice or data requirements.
INTEGRATED T1 - Data and voice calls are used on the same digital circuit. You choose how many of the 24 channels of the T1 connection are used for voice calls and what is left is for data.
FRACTIONAL T1 - Uses part of the total Bandwidth for a fraction of the full T1 rate.
BURSTABLE T1 - This is a "pay as you use" service. It provides a certain amount of Bandwidth at all times but allows you to use more Bandwidth at peak times.
BONDED T1 - Can offer the maximum Bandwidth of several T1's simultaneously for greater speed and efficiency. It combines individual T1's into one pipeline allowing for more Bandwith than two individual T1 lines.
COST OF A T1 - T1's are not cheap,however T1 provides a very reliable connection which has to be paid for in guaranteed uptime. If your business relies heavily on employees and customers to access data and applications T1 is worth investing in.
SERVICE AGREEMENT - When choosing an ISP the releiability of the connection is the most important factor but that comes at a price. It is not possible to maintain 100% uptime. However most providers will aim to provide 99.99% uptime during the course of a year. With a service agreement providers will have to pay their customers for any downtime exceeding the specific agreement.
CONTRACTS - Your T1 contract should be fully detailed with no hidden surprises or costs. Contracts should specify all the costs involved,service length and service agreement. Contracts are generally for 12,24 or 36 months and may include setup fees,equipment costs and installation. If the contract is terminated early you may have to pay several hundred dollars up to the contract balance.
START UP - When your contract is signed, a telecoms engineer will visit your location to install and test the necessary circuits. The T1 provider will then install, routers,connects up your LAN,configures your IP address and firewall. They may also install any other equipment that you have specified. It can take up to 45 days from signing the contract to be fully operational so you should plan well in advance.
PRICES INTERNET ACCESS - Prices of monthly T1 are usually in the range £250 - $1,000. There may be a similar price for the initial installation. A Fractional T1 will be $100 - $200 per month. Bonded T1's will be priced at several T1 lines so for example 3 Bonded T1 lines will equate to £750 - $3,000 per month approximately. A standard T1 would also include the local loop charge for the phone company which is typically $150 upwards. The provider will generally supply most of the equipment such as routers,ethernet cables or T1 Pipes for nil cost or they will be included in the monthly cost. Usually some setup costs will be waived for the duration of the contract.
